Comments from recent clients
"Working with Rose has been a fruitful exercise for Justice and Care. Rose very quickly ‘got’ us, our work and what we wanted to achieve. She was always prompt with her deliverables, which were detailed and always at a high standard.
She helped bring clarity in the places needed, helped to re-frame our thinking and provide us with a solid framework upon which to report our impact and our over all strategy. We have benefited from her insight, expertise and experience. It was a successful partnership. Thank you so much."
Joyita Ambett, CEO Justice & Care
“Rose is someone who offers her expertise and experience to help re shape, evaluate and refresh the fundamental vision, with clarity and force.
She worked closely with us over several weeks, in both a challenging and supportive role, to firstly strip us back to essentials, to identify priorities and then set targets for the future - targets that really meet the needs and aspirations of our constituents.
Her methods are unique and effective - sympathetic, well structured and accessible, collaborative and cooperative, she knows how to draw out the best in people and organisations, to gain real clarity and progression for their organisations”
Tim Brown, Director Raw Material
“Working with Rose really focused me with achievable goals for my social enterprise. Quite a challenge with someone with ADHD! We worked through what was needed in a way that I felt comfortable with and that I could use to implement over the next few months.
Already we have achieved most of the small term goals, including funding and new premises to scale up. We are now working on the longer term.
Rose’s way works. I would have no qualms in highly recommending her methodology of approach to social businesses who want to achieve sustainable growth.”
